As you know I got a sous vide as a gift, and I have been trying my hardest to use it as often as I can. Now I know it can be time consuming, but man does stuff come out good. Gone are the days of roasting things in the oven or frying things in a pan and having it dry out. Sous Vide reminds me of those “Set it and Forget it” commercials from back in the day. So I decided to sous vide a 4 bone pork rack (originally came in a rack of 8 bones, but I cut it in half, because who the heck is going to eat 8…). I made this before by roasting in the oven and it came out great, but this one came out better in my opinion. Also this recipe is not from anywhere, or based on anything, but just me experimenting, so feel free to mess around obviously. But you can try both and let me know!
- Rack of pork
- Kosher Salt and pepper
- 1/4 tbsp of dried oregano, thyme, rosemary
- Olive oil
- Set sous vide water bath to 143º F (or oven to 350º)
- Rinse and dry pork rack
- Salt and pepper the pork, and add herbs as well
- Place the pork rack into the bag, add some olive oil, and seal (alternatively place in roasting pan and drizzle oil)
- Place in water bath for 90 minutes (or oven for 1hour)
- Remove from water bath, pat dry, and sear in skillet over high heat for ~2-3 minutes a side (may need a little oil in the skillet)
- if using the oven, skip this step
- Let the pork rest, cut, serve, and enjoy!
